Pro V1 loyalist Yani Tseng's comeback victory at the LPGA's P&G NW Arkansas Championship highlighted a four-win weekend for Titleist golf ball players.

In 2010, Titleist golf ball players have recorded 99 total victories, nearly five times the nearest competitor with 20.

Tseng made five birdies on the back nine Sunday at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Ark., to close in 6-under 65 for a one-shot victory. Tseng, who two-putted for birdie from the fringe on 18, started the day three shots back of the leader.

She has come from behind to earn four of her five LPGA victories, including two of her three major championships.

"I really enjoy it out there and I always think what I'm doing right now, like really play one shot at a time," said Tseng. "I don't think behind, I don't think ahead."

Tseng was one of 102 players in the P&G NW Arkansas Championship field that trusted Titleist golf balls, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 13.

Pro V1 loyalist Russ Cochran earned his first Champions Tour title Sunday at the inaugural New Songdo City Championship in South Korea with a tap-in birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff.

Cochran was one of 41 players in the field that trusted a Titleist golf ball, more than 10 times the nearest competitor with four. Titleist was also first Iron Sets (20); and Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (37).

Pro V1 loyalist Peter Karmis opened with consecutive 63s and went wire-to-wire in winning his first Asian Tour event at the inaugural 2010 Handa Singapore Classic at Orchid Country Club.

Karmis was one of 102 players in the field in Singapore that trusted Titleist golf balls, six times the nearest competitor with 17.

• On the South African Sunshine Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Tyrone Ferreira (Pro V1x, 909D3 driver, 909F2 fairway metal, AP2 irons, Vokey Design wedges) carded a final round 5-under 67 at Randpark Golf Club to capture the SAA Pro-Am Invitational tournament by one shot. It was Ferreira's second Sunshine Tour title.

Ferreira was one of 95 players in the SAA Pro-Am field that trusted Titleist golf balls, more than two times the nearest competitor with 41.

• Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the PGA Tour's BMW Championship with 41 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 8. Titleist was also first in Drivers (23), including 15 new 910 prototype drivers; Hybrids (19), including 3 new 910 prototype hybrids; Iron Sets (23); Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (65); and Putters (26).

• And at the European Tour's KLM Open, 93 players trusted Titleist golf balls, three times the nearest competitor with 31.

At this point in the PGA Tour season, most players are locked and loaded, ready with their trusty gamers. But that doesn't mean we're closed for business.

Many golfers don't feel they are skilled enough to play Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x balls. Others believe Pro V1 and Pro V1x are only for players with faster swing speeds.

Both are common misconceptions the Titleist Performance Golf Ball Fitting teams hear as they tour the country to educate golfers on Titleist's green-to-tee methodology and to identify the Titleist golf ball that will help them shoot lower scores.

Members of the Performance Golf Ball Fitting teams checked in with Team Titleist from a recent pit stop to help set the record straight.

“What’s important for golfers to know is that the Pro V1 and Pro V1x are really designed for golfers of all skill levels and swing speeds,” said Patrick Hanna, a member of the golf ball fitting team currently touring the Midwest. “The Pro V1 and Pro V1x are designed for optimal performance for all types of shots that are hit during a normal round of golf.” 

In fact, all Titleist golf balls are long, regardless of swing speed. Differences between models off the driver for swing speeds ranging from tour players (near 110 mph) down to lower speed players (in the 80s mph) are less than four yards, a distance that is not going to affect your game or your score.

Game-changing differences are found on the scoring shots into and around the green, and the Pro V1 and Pro V1x offer the most performance control on all shots.

"So far it has been nice to see positive reactions when people hear the truth about some of the common misconceptions," added John Fizer, a member of the East Coast Titleist Performance Golf Ball Fitting team. "Once we explain that different players can benefit from either golf ball, but for different reasons, they are very intrigued."

Golfers of all skill levels have visited with the Titleist Performance Golf Ball Fitting teams, ranging from PGA Club professionals, to some of the most competitive amateurs and juniors in the country, to recreational golfers.

The action picked up as the wind died down Wednesday at the BMW Championship, where players made their final preparations for the third phase of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Playoffs. Photographer Greg Moore, a loyal Team Titleist member, was kind enough to send in some photos from the day, featuring a lot of Titleist equipment and a new Scotty Cameron putter. (Team Titleist was also on the scene and took a few shots as well.)
